Hyperkeratotic "growth" at Mohs surgical site
I had open wound surgery for squamous on my forearm in May '22. I had followup every couple of weeks and everything "looked great." Last week I went for another place on my hand and they looked at the surgical site. An almost marble sized light colored place had come up at the edge of the site. The RNP said the is hyperkeratotic–like a fast overgrowing of skin. She said it is possible the pathology did not see all clear edges as reported. We are to watch it and come back in two weeks. I may have to have additional biopsy and surgery. "Sometimes it happens." The wound the first time took two months to get to the point of not having to do daily care and bandaging. The thought of having to go through another surgery on the same place makes me a little sick on my stomach. Trying not to be dramatic but what if the pathology messes up again? Any others out there who have experienced this situation? Would love to hear from you. Blessings.
